"I have worked closely with Vanessa on a review and report for UK government on post-16 mathematics education, a key issue for the UK skills and industrial strategy agendas. Vanessa oversaw the detailed work of the review team, which covered in depth a wide range of economic, social and educational issues and data sources. She combined a high level of educational knowledge and insight with considerable organisational and political skills in guiding the project to have maximum impact within Whitehall. It was a pleasure to work with her."
